These terms are completely misleading and unsettle consumers,' Germany's agriculture minister said.


I totally agree. I've been hearing lots about vegetarian currywurst lately. I haven't been so unbearably uncomfortable since I was offered jumbo shrimp.

If someone gets confused then that should just tell how stupid that person is. Sorry but that's just my opinion.

As always governments around the world are wasting time and resources on useless shit instead of other things that are way more important

Remember how funny it was when the FDA wanted to stop calling prunes, "prunes?" Instead, they wanted to call "prunes," "dried plums...."

Yeah. That was a real thing! Hilarious, yeah?!

I wonder - is this particular incident actually indicative of a nearsighted over-regulatory attitude, or is covering this exaggerating its importance? I'm no longer sure it's possible to know this from an article alone.

Oh, thought he was complaining that they were "inaccurate" because they DID have meat in them.

We used to have a vegetarian Chinese restaurant that served some of the best flavored soy/tofu meat-substitute "Veggie Beef", "Veggie Shrimp" and "Veggie Chicken" in their stir-fry. Most non-Vegans didn't even know it wasn't meat, and on the whole, it was too good to care.

I take it Germany is NEW at this whole "Meatless" thing, and given their cultural cuisine, that wouldn't surprise me.

Gotta stay a food war to avoid talking about the migrant problems Germany is facing. We can't have people paying attention to real issues.

What do they use for the casing on vegetarian sausage?
Posted 12/30/16
Wow. That stuff looks like puke not sausage. I agree it shouldn't be called sausage, but there is no need to legislate the issue.
